Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko

Oh shi– YOKODERAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!

Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko

HNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

I know right, Azuki Azusa.

To be honest, I think this episode was quite a bit of a mess. Well, pretty much the entire arc is a mess. Cramming this novel in two episodes probably didn’t help either.

At least the eyecatches are amazing this arc!

The big reveal/twist turns out to be Emi being part of a wish Yokodera made in the past, that he has somehow totally forgotten. Along with past memories of meeting Emi previously and also of his past meeting with Tsukiko that was shown earlier. Probably with his childhood memories of meeting the Tsutsukakushis’ mother that was alluded to earlier.

I’m not really liking this plot device at all, to be honest. It’s just such a forced way of generating drama while being overly forgiving of the protagonist. Not to mention allowing for all sorts of weird things to come in while ultimately explaining it as the “protagonist did xxx in the past but he forgot it”. Annoying.

Then there’s also the thing with the Cat God taking over people’s bodies, Azuki Azusa in this case, and suddenly taking on an active role as an antagonist. I was quite fine with the series pushing the “be careful what you wish for” angle, but now that the deus ex machina is actually interfering with things it’s not so nice anymore. Again, like Yokodera’s selective amnesia, this is just another forced drama generator IMO.

Emi is probably the worst offender though, since it’s really unclear if she’s actually a real person/character or just something that’s created in the process of the Cat God’s deus ex machina wish granting device. Didn’t help that Yokodera somehow restored everything with just a kiss without having her getting erased, even if the Cat God stated otherwise just before that. And as a character, she’s been totally shafted from any character development too. It just feels like she’s there just to have a loli character at any cost. Maybe the novels have a better view of her character, anyone reading that?

In any case, I’m glad this arc is over with now, although it didn’t leave a good taste in the mouth. Next week’s preview has cheerleader Azuki Azusa, is it finally her arc again?

    No Woof woof Azuki dog communication screencaps?
    I swear as much as Yokodera claims to be a good guy, his slient advance towards a frantic Azusa was so overkill. Poor girl was already scared half to death.

    The longest what? Wang? Climax? Diamond drill?

    I would have thought you’d screencap naked Tsu-chan minus her MIlitary Zapped somethingsomethingsomething.

    I would wait until the end of the season to comment on the pacing as the scriptwriters only have 24min x 12/13 to stuff things in. Otherwise it was quite and informative exposition as to how the waranai neko works. It grants wishes but how it arrives at the wish depends on the current situation. Like how ebil Azusaneko was going to grant the burn in hell wish… revoke the Italy wish and concurrently fall. Reminds me of another wish making device… Hentai Ouji to Seihai. :3

    On a lighter note, I agree with Emi that Yokodera is a pumpkin. He has a harem and is dense: 1x senpai, classmate, kohei and a loli to top it off. Also, lolicons rejoice. Remember! God is with us!

    I dunno, I think amnesia and cat-god-possession result in a more interesting story and aren’t just “forced drama”, not that the term means anything in the first place. All drama in narratives is “forced”.
